It’s time for a (systems) change! Between technology, inequality and climate change, cities and regions are facing new, multi-dimensional “wicked problems” which are not easily defined or solved. How do you talk to your colleagues, the public and elected officials about possible futures and the complex interventions they require? Three Bay Area initiatives—Connect SF, Resilient by Design and SPUR’s Regional Strategy—are bold public and civic conversations about the future of cities and the age of on-demand, door-to-door, autonomy, big data, housing shortages, sea level rise and rising inequality. Hear how shaping the future of cities requires practitioners and leaders to change models, and our mental models.
